How do I suggest new or different data sources?

What does the reporting status mean?

We have used two different types of reporting status for an indicator, which are also colour coded:

Reported online: As a minimum the headline national data for this indicator is available on this website but the data might not be fully disaggregated yet. We are continuing to source additional disaggregation’s

Exploring data sources: We are still looking for a suitable data source for this indicator

Where there is additional information about the status of indicator data collection and reporting, this will be displayed at the top of the indicator page.

How often will new data be added to this site?

We will add data as soon as it has been sourced and checked. This includes new data as well as updates to data we have already published. We will continue to collect data from existing sources where possible, in cooperation with topic experts.

What browsers can I use to view this website?

Our website works with most of the latest versions of the commonly used browsers. There are some issues with using the site on older versions of browsers eg IE8 and we are working to fix these.

Can others copy this website?

Yes. This site is built and hosted using 100% free software and services, so other countries and localities can freely and easily reuse our code. Technical guidance on implementing this platform is available here. Countries and localities exploring how to report their own SDGs data can also get support from the Center for Open Data Enterprise (CODE) through their SDG National Reporting Initiative.
